Auckland man arrested

An Auckland man found news travels fast in Dunedin, when he mixed literature and littering early today.

Officers on patrol noticed the news quite literally hitting the streets at 4.30 am.

The culprit was a 20 year old man throwing copies of the Otago Daily Times, delivered to retailers, across George Street.

Questioned on his activities, he said he was merely reading the paper. He then asked police if that was now a crime.

Police felt the manner of his early morning read was the issue, and arrested him for disorderly behaviour.
